We’re making our own shirts now.



Because of our DIY aspiration, everything we do takes quite long, but when it’s done, it’s good for us and for all of you. We got ourselves into silkscreen printing and we’re starting our new production now. It’s a dirty job, but we like to do it. If you want to preorder some shirt, or even have some custimized wishes, let us know.

Music Sheets of the Current 93 Album “Soft Black Stars”.

The “Soft Black Stars”-Album is for us one of the greatest neofolk album ever recorded. So it’s a great news that the music transcription is now available. Maybe we’ll do st. with it.. 😉

We’re back / Frank Castorf uses our songs.

Dear comrades, we’re back from the bunker. We needed some time of retreat from the internet to finish the long promised CD and we’re pleased to announce that it is done and now in the process of mastering. The details and the exact release date will follow soon. There will be an usual edition AND also special 2CD edition, containing at least 3 new tracks (yes, “Summertime Sadness” is one of them).

Also we got informed, that the enfant terrible of Germany’s theatre scene, the famous director FRANK CASTORF used our version of “Love Me Forever” in his latest production “The Adventures of the Good Soldier Svejk” at the RESIDENZTHEATER in Munich. Thanks Frank, we feel flattered.
